Cleveland's star left offensive tackle has not yet informed the team on his future plans, and the uncertainty is influencing the Browns' plans in National Football League free agency.

The Boston Herald's Jeff Howe reported on Tuesday that Solder would like to stay in New England, but is willing to sign with a different team if the Patriots don't make a competitive offer.

Thomas has been mulling whether to continue his playing career since the 10-time Pro Bowler suffered a torn left triceps injury on October 22. He has yet to inform the Browns of his plans this offseason. Giardi tweeted that interest in the Patriots left tackle has been 'off the charts.' Denver is also in the mix for Solder, but Giardi noted that with New England and Houston in pursuit the price tag is likely too high. Even after adding three players in a series of trades this week, the Browns have $82 million in cap space.

The 33-year-old Thomas has said several times that he planned to give the Browns a decision before the start of free agency, which began on Monday with the "legal tampering" period and picks up steam when teams can begin signing players at 4 p.m. Wednesday.

Teams always end up over-paying free agents; Andrew Norwell, a left guard who earned $2.7 million from Carolina last year, has a five-year, $66.5 million contract with Jacksonville in place.

Fan-favorite Justin Pugh is still on the market for the Giants, if they want to re-sign him.

"I've seen him putting (weight) back on now here recently, but he's Joe", Browns coach Hue Jackson told reporters at the Combine earlier this month.
